A Circular Walk around the Great Ridge.

January 13 @ 9:30 am 5:00 pm

Start. Meet at 9.45 for a 10.00 am prompt start. Grid ref 131833. Road parking opposite Blue John Entrance.

Route. Down towards Castleton and along to Hope. This part of the walk could be very boggy so gaiters and possibly waterproof over trousers are recommended. Then north through Hope past the school and then crossing the railway line and heading over in the direction of Ladybower to join the Roman Road. Continuing north west to Jaggers Clough. From there heading in a south westerly direction towards Nether Booth and Vale of Edale. Then south to cross the road and up to Hollins Cross and back towards the starting point.

13 miles. 6 hrs walking with 3000ft of ascent.

Shorter Option to Finish. For those of a slower disposition there is a shorter option. Walk north west from Hope and then west towards Spring House Farm and Losehill Hall. Join Hollowford Road by a Training and Conference Centre and follow this in a northerly direction towards Hollins Cross and follow the track below this back to the cars.

6 miles (very approximately)
